Comments Initial orientation was very weak. There was no in water check out for us on our boat. I think some other boats did have a check out. This was not important for my wife and me but it should be important to the Dive Facility. We were not told before we arrived that the "lock" boxes for personal items were not operable at the time of our visit or my wife would certainly have left any jewelry at home. Even though my wife hid them well, her wedding ring and another ring were stolen from the room. We heard of another couple that had money stolen.The Resort Staff conducted a routine search of our room (which we had already done)and questioned the maids and reminded us of the many years of service the maids had given with no problems. Overall we lost over $4,000 in property and the better part of a day in the Police Station filing a theft report. The rooms lock but it is very easy to gain access. I accidently locked myself out one day and went to the desk and asked for a key and it was given with no questions of identity. The facility is well set up for divers but we have visited Co Co View and Anthony's Key and we personally feel both rank higher overall than Fantasy Island. Mary's Place is of course one of the prettiest of all dives. The rest of the dives are good but not exceptional.
